We had a great stay here. Al and Verna would wonderful hosts and could not have been more helpful. Al provided us with some great tips on what to see and how to get to them. The accommodation is beautiful and had all the amentities that we needed. Was a great place to come home to after exploring Fairbanks all day. Thanks for a wonderful stay.
I stayed in the King Studio; it was great! The room also holds a full couch/bed, so a family of four could be comfortable in the room. The cupboards and refrigerator were well-stocked so that I could choose what I wanted for breakfast. a variety of muffins and bagels, two types of cereal, eggs, milk and orange juice. The coffee pot was ready to push the button!
The hosts placed a lot of tourist-type pamphlets in the room and they would have been welcomed by those who were trying to decide how to spend time in the area.
The bathroom was downstairs, but private and well-stocked.
The laundry was in the same building, in another entrance. I didn't check it out.
Raspberries were growing thick on the property. Told I could pick and eat freely, I really enjoyed the rare Alaskan treat!
Airport pick-up and delivery is very important to me. I appreciated the personal touch!
Al and Verna were excellent hosts. I enjoyed them both!
Al and Verna have a number of different accommodations available. We had the studio apartment on the 2nd floor in the building next to their home. Fully stocked kitchen with lots of choices for breakfast. (Hey Al -- Alaska has great beer. What's with the Coor's lite in the fridge!) As Al explained when we made the reservation, the bathroom was on the first floor. Free laundry facility is available. Bikes available free of charge. Al was very helpful in giving us great suggestions for things to do.

A True Gem In Fairbanks My husband and I can't say enough about the wonderful stay we had with Allen and Verna Fleming at the Downtown Log Cabin Hideaway Bed and Breakfast. We arrived on a motorcycle after calling the B&B from the Fairbanks Visitor's Center. The Visitor's Center was very complementary regarding this specific B&B and since we had no advanced reservations we were very lucky that they were able to accommodate us. We were given the loft for one night before moving into the main house for our stay of over five days. The loft was comfortable and more that met our needs. Allen is so knowledgeable about the surrounding areas that we just relied on his expertise to direct us to the best sights. He was helpful beyond our expectations. Verna's breakfasts were varied and plentiful. Our room and the house as a whole was spotless.
We will definitely return to stay at the Downtown Log Cabin B&B the next time we are in Fairbanks, Alaska.

Although we were needing a real hotel, everything was booked solid in Fairbanks.
While calling hotels, the Downtown Log Cabin came up as an option. We did not know it was a B&B, but we got the last room Alan and Verna had in their main house.
When we arrived, we were surprised to find it was a private home (we've never stayed in a B&B before), we are private people, and weren't very comfortable sharing a bathroom with strangers, but it was our only option, so we stayed.
We told Alan and Verna the situation, and they were so gracious, they worked so hard to try and find somewhere else for us to stay. I've never met nicer people.
The bed was very comfortable, and we slept well. The next morning's breakfast was delicious, made even more enjoyable by our conversation with our hosts. They know so much about this area, and helped us decide what to do and see.
Although the situation wasn't exactly what we were looking for, it was absolutely worth it to meet these great people.
If you like B&B's, you can't go wrong here, it's a quality location, close to everything, and the hosts are the best!
Super place for us This was our first trip to Alaska and of all our memories...one of the fondest will be the time spent here on Badger Street at this B and B. Verna's cooking was beyond compare and I'll never forget sitting at the table in the morning anticipating what she would whip-up next. Al was one of the most engaging people I've ever had the pleasure of speaking with. These folks were/are the salt of the earth. I pass this information along to encourage anyone who is thinking on visiting the 49th state.
Incredible place...Incredible people Last summer while R-ving around Alaska it became apparent that I needed some R and R from my cramped RV. I just happened to be driving down Badger Street in Fairbanks when this very Alaskan looking log cabin with a B & B sign hung off a great flower covered deck. It looked like a fabulous place and quite Alaskan. I checked in with Al and Verna who were so friendly and fun that I knew I was home. However, they told me they were ""full"" except for a loft with a porta potty. Al said he would empty it if I persisted in staying. I did and he did! The loft was clean with fresh linens daily. The food was extra good and more than enough so I only had to eat breakfast the entire day, saving me money. After three days a room opened up in the main lodge which was offered to me by Verna. She said it had a ""real"" bathroom and I moved over. It was fabulous. It was clean and roomy with free WiFi and laundry. The best part was the fun and knowledge these two had about Alaska and life and their willingness to share. I discovered later that their prices were more fair than other local B and B's. This place is the greatest with the greatest hosts in the US. I would recommend my 93 year old mother to try this unique, clean, inexpensive B & B with two great Alaskans who truly love the North Country and love to share it with guests.
Like visiting family! Me and my son stayed at the Downtown Log Cabin Hideaway for 2 nites .It was the best stay ever. Verna and Al are outstanding.We had the Hall House.It has a separate entrance,is spacious,very
clean,nice decoration,comfy rooms etc. We shared the house the first nite and had it the second nite to ourselves as no one had booked the other room. Al even said we could use the bicycles (mountain bikes in mint condition)for free, which he kindly left in the garage for us. So i make it short: you'll feel like coming home to mom and dad.We would recommend this place to anyone!
